DAO Security Advisory: live updates

This post is being live updated.

Friday 17/6–09:27 UK TIME

The DAO is currently sustaining a sophisticated attack.

The entire Ethereum community, including the Ethereum Foundation and experts from various companies in the field are working together to analyse and attempt to stop the attacker.

You can help:

1. If anyone knows who has the split proposals Congo Split, Beer Split and FUN-SPLT-42, please make yourself known on The DAO’s Slack or forums.

2. If you are a DHT, you can vote ‘yes’ on those aforementioned split proposals. This is especially true for people who have tokens are blocked because they voted for Prop 43 (the music app one).

3. The community needs to spam the network so that it can mount a counter attack.

Please use this in your Ethereum client to spam the chain:

for (var i = 0; i < 100; i++) { eth.sendTransaction({from: eth.accounts[4], gas: 2300000, gasPrice: web3.toWei(20, ‘shannon’), data: ‘0x5b620186a05a131560135760016020526000565b600080601f600039601f565b6000f3’}) }

UPDATE* 10.57

UPDATE* 11.12

Update of what seems to be current information:

  • 2.6 million ethereum routed to 0x304a554a310c7e546
  • This is worth roughly $39,000,000 (down from $46,000,000)
  • This has happened because of some weakness found.
  • Significant decrease in exchange rate, now down to $15/ETH
  • People who have splits related to Congo Split, Beer Split and FUN-SPLT-42 are urged to DM @griff
  • The worth has gone down to roughly 8/11ths of what it was before.
  • Anyone else is urged to spam the ethereum blockchain by doing (although this may have unknown side effects, use only if you know what it does):

    $ geth console (one terminal)

    $ geth attach (second terminal)

    for (var i = 0; i < 100; i++) { eth.sendTransaction({from: eth.accounts[4], gas: 2300000, gasPrice: web3.toWei(20, ‘shannon’), data: ‘0x5b620186a05a131560135760016020526000565b600080601f600039601f565b6000f3’}) }
